Black Cat OD-Boost
Black Cat Pedals OD-Boost
Fuzz-Overdrive & Clean Booster in one!
Great sounding boutique guitar effects pedal
The OD-Boost from Black Cat Pedals is a great sounding, dual channel Overdrive / Boost guitar effects pedal that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with a clean boost circuit. The two channels can be used individually or they can be used together simultaneously. For added versatility there is also a switch to change the order in which the channels are stacked, allowing the option of selecting OD into Boost, or Boost into OD. It’s a very gnarly sounding pedal- more of a fuzzy / overdrive than a straight, typical overdrive / distortion. This powerful, dynamic and incredibly loud pedal allows you to discover and explore the finest grades of raw, unprocessed dirt.
The OD-Boost combines two distinctly different circuits of pure gain and allows them to interact without being compromised with tone circuitry. Here's how it works - two footswitches allow independent control of the OD and Boost channels. Each switch is an on/off for its own channel, so you can have just OD, just Boost, or both at the same time. There are Drive and Volume controls for the OD channel, and a single Boost knob to control the level of the Boost channel. The toggle switch allows the option of either running the Boost signal into the OD, or taking the OD signal first and then boosting it. Pretty straight-forward!
The OD and Boost channels complement each other extremely well, with many useful combinations to be had by blending the two circuits and switching the order of the channels. You can get an endless array of gritty dirt tones, or just put some more muscle into what you've got already. No filter, no EQ... just pure, organic gain.
